Was anyone able to successfully use any VOIP app on this phone?
I tried several of them, i can her the other party fine but all they hear is some distortion.

I tested with Skype, Line2, Sipdroid, Fring.
Fring and Sipdroid are totally unusable.

It seems like Motorola screwed up the voice API's on the phone so no VOIP app works..

This is a serious let down for me. I was looking forward to being able to use Skype on my phone after many years of crappy WinMo phones. This SUCKS

Agree, voip sucks. I'm coming from iphone 4 and this is one major thing that I miss. There were so many voip apps in ios, they all worked perfectly.

I literally tried every single free (and two paid) voip apps on the market yesterday. Nothing works on this phone like it should. Either the mic is all messed up or the audio is choppy, Motorola really messed something up here.

Same here. I've tried several of them and none works right. The same apps work perfectly on my Galaxy Tab so my assumption is that this is a Motorola mess-up.

Did you guys ever stop to think that it's the applications that don't support the phone, not the phone itself? Blaming Motorola for a third party app not working is the most ludicrous thing I've heard all day.
